support form cit. mark sebastian of option pit mentoring joins us on this thursday morning. good morning mark. we are now post that fed meeting. did traders get any clues about tapering? - you know, not as much as they would like. in fact, if anything, the fed brought more variables in bringing up inflation this time. i think the only thing the fed really let us know is that the fed is a little less confident in their ability to really keep control of this thing than they thought they were. - we had a surprising number coming in with that adp number: 200,000 jobs added to payrolls in the month of july. what does that mean for the jobs number on friday? - you know, the jobs numbers have been trending up. i think the market wants good but not great so that the fed doesn't have to stop tapering. - let's do some stock talking now. what about visa and mastercard and some of these credit card companies coming in with earnings? - they lost a really obscure court case yesterday, and they got spanked for it. visa had the worst day it's had in over two years. mastercard gave away a 20+ point gain

. u.s. officials will likely debate "when" to start wrapping up the monthly bond buying program that has been stimulating the economy. fed chair ben bernanke is not attending this year's summit due to a scheduling conflict.his term expires in january. president obama says america's colleges need to be more accountable for the value they provide students, their families and taxpayers. but as our cover story explains---he left open precisely how that value is measured. in buffalo, new york, president obama said rising costs are making college out of reach and a disturbing national trend reflects that---student loan default rates have now climbed above 9%--the highest it's been in 17-years. "bottom line is this, we've got a crisis in college affordability and student debt." so the president proposed the following reforms: first, a federal college value rating that could be tied to federal funding. second, the president wants to better prepare students for the global economy. but some fear that may curtail long-range thinkers in favor of short-term fixers.

dell's effort to take over the company. scott shellady of trean group joins us on this friday morning, and of course the jobs number is due out today. scott, what do you think we're in for? - well, if you're a taper tiger, you better hope for a big one, because that will supposedly put some pressure on the fed to start tapering in that september-october time frame that most people have been talking about. i think the fed has said over and over they're data-dependant, so i think you're going to have to see something really good to change that unemployment rate from 7.6% to something much healthier. so, i think right now we're going to be around that 200 range, which was the adp number. i think that's fair. but let's just see if that comes through. and then gdp, we're not doing too well there. - what is the stock market, though, telling us about the economy? - the stock market's had a dovish fed speak a couple days ago. yesterday, draghi was also seen as dovish. that's given a boost to the market with "accomodation." then we've had a couple things trickle across the tapes that haven't b
